How to Use MathType in OneNote


Basic mathematics equations are easily carried out using a standard keyboard. Computer users take advantage of this functionality with computer programs designed for financial management, including budgeting and tax preparation. However, if you need to perform advanced equations, the task gets trickier. Computers have the processing ability to calculate trigonometric equations, work with imaginary numbers and more, but the symbols needed for the equations don't exist on your keyboard. MathType is a program that places mathematical symbols on a toolbar or ribbon for quick access and use in programs like Microsoft Office OneNote.

  • Download the MathType plug-in from Design Science's website. A 30-day free trial is available if you want to try MathType before purchasing.

  • Double-click on the MathType installation file and click "Next" through the on-screen automated installation.

  • Open Microsoft OneNote. According to the MathType website, OneNote is compatible with MathType as part of the default installation. You should notice an new tab in your Microsoft Office OneNote interface. From the MathType tab, you can click on the special symbols to insert them. If you do not see this tab, then your OneNote software does not have the necessary syntax plug-ins for mathematical symbols. You can download a special mathematics plug-in from Dragonshorn Studios to remedy this problem.
